SWD add four Cape Cobras players for Provincial T20 Cup - Sports Leo

South Western Districts (SWD) have been boosted by four Cape Cobras franchise players – Aviwe Mgijima, Tladi Bokako, Nandré Burger and Akhona Mnyaka – for this year’s Provincial T20 Cup.

The quartet will join locals like Neil Hornbuckle, Brendon Louw and Jean du Plessis, so SWD will have a strong line-up for the tournament. The team will be captained by former SA U/19 player Du Plessis.

SWD are in Pool B and will head north to Kimberley this weekend to take on hosts Northern Cape, Boland, Eastern Province and KwaZulu-Natal Inland.

SWD coach Baakier Abrahams is confident ahead of the weekend’s pool matches.

“We take confidence in our preparations and there is a vibe of excitement for the weekend,” he said.

Abrahams and his troops will be keen to improve on last season’s performances, but they will face some tough competition in the Diamond City.

Meanwhile, SWD Cricket have announced Smart Office Connexion as the team sponsor for the Provincial T20 Cup for the fifth consecutive year.

“We have a long association with SWD Cricket and are proud to be involved with an organisation that strives for excellence and is a respected business partner,” said Marcel de Ridder, Business Director for Smart Office.

Albertus Kennedy, CEO of SWD Cricket, said: “We are grateful for the ongoing support from our business partners and we are looking forward with confidence to our team’s ambitions for this coming weekend.”

SWD President, Rudi Claassen, said: “We thank Smart Office Connexion for their ongoing support for our brand. I am sure their involvement will be a huge boost to our players and to the game generally in our area.”
